Aztec Records is a British independent record label founded in 2010 by Laura Fares (aka LAU) and Ariel Amejeiras.[1] It specialises in Synthpop / Retrowave / Synthwave subgenres of Pop and Electronic music of the 80s.[2] The record company has released acts such as Bright Light Bright Light,[3] NINA,[4] Zenith Volt, Sunglasses Kid,[5] Owlle,[6] Gryff and many others.[7]

Bright Light Bright Light is Welsh composer/producer and DJ Rod Thomas. His album "Make Me Believe In Hope",[8] was recorded during two years with different collaborators: Andy Chatterley (Kylie/ Nerina Pallot), Boom Bip (Neon Neon) and The Invisible Men (Jessie J). With clear influences from the late 80's and early 90's, he developed an electropop sound that refers to Depeche Mode, Bjork, Yazoo and Ace of Base.[9] His first song, "Immature", is filtered rhythmically in the style of The Postal Service.[10] Attitude Magazine described him as «Creator of emotional disco moments that only Kylie or Robyn can normally provide.»[11]

Laura Fares discovered and developed NINA (Nina Boldt) since 2010, a German singer-songwriter based in Berlin, with whom she formed a band until 2019. Aztec Records released NINA’s first single "Take Me Away", a pop dance song, in 2011.[12] The label has also produced and released NINA’s first two albums ‘Sleepwalking’ (2018) and ‘Synthian’ (2020), with producers like Richard X, Oscillian, Ricky Wilde and Sunglasses Kid. Both albums became classic references of the Synthwave sound and were co-written by Laura Fares, who later on launched her solo career as singer-songwriter LAU in 2020.

The label counts with more than 20 international artists in their roster and releases new music weekly.

Aztec Music Publishing is the publishing arm of Aztec Records. It was launched in 2014 to manage and expand its catalog more efficiently and to place its releases in movies, television, games and commercials. Placements include brands such as Mercedes Benz,[13] Hugo Boss, Adidas, Uniqlo, Victoria's Secret [14]and many more.[15]
